Aubaine.







Photos by me

I met up with a good friend yesterday so we decided to have some lunch. We were meandering around the Marylebone area and decided to have lunch at Aubaine. Aubaine is a causal place with a delicate Parisian twist. The flavours are strong but ever so slight, perfect for some inconsequential but  indulgent delights in the afternoon. Plenty of light to which made for some serious Instagram fun.

New In.

photo: by me

There is no story as to how I managed to snag one of the most coveted bags of the moment. introducing my new Mansur Gavriel bucket bag in Black/Flamma. This one is currently priced at £395 with the red lining and the limited edition one is for £525 with the gold lining. This size is right for me because I needed a substantially sized bag for the moment and need a bigger one still,  (currently looking at the Céline horizontal cabas) since my handbag-buying choices of late have been mainly style over substance and by substance I mean wayyy too small. In my opinion, this bag is a thing of beauty it's subtle enough, yet cool enough. To think I was going to get the Louis Vuitton Petit Noé! (Well, I still might.) My fav feature happens to be the red lining known as 'Flamma'. Reminds me of Louboutin's red sole. All I can say is that I asked the universe and the universe delivered. You can still buy yours at Net-a-porter but hurry, not only has the prices gone up, they are selling out fast!

The Quest For The White Background...

You know when you see bloggers and instagrammers (the same folk nowadays) take a perfect picture of an object and somehow the image is pristine? They all have something in common, the photo-studio white background. I always thought they existed only in wall-to-wall sizes but clearly there must be a simpler way to capture a solitary cup of coffee without the breadcrumbs from your wooden kitchen table showing up in the shot. Or using your wrinkled sheets as a backdrop. Doesn't help either. Scowl. So how can I effect that beautiful white background which will reflect the light everywhere and gives my images that minimalist beauty?

I have been searching on Amazon and eBay and found there are portable photo studios for capturing small objects, which at first seems great but what if I want to show you my new bag or my porridge oats?? How will that help? I will be loving soon, to where there is more natural light and space so maybe that will help. In the mean time, if anyone can help, what do you suggest?
